Having run out of family, friends & acquaintances, I have resorted to passing courgettes to total strangers.
This worked pretty well - the basket on the front wall was all but empty after a couple of hours - even the huge courgettes, verging on the marrow size.
At the Hill, the runner beans have finally kicked in & I may actually have got the quantities right this year (about 12 plants, for future ref) - which is giving me a steady, but not overwhelming, quantity.
Unlike the french beans, which have been disappointingly stringy, they melt in your mouth - consequently, I'm leaving the french beans for drying, & scoffing the runners at every opportunity. It's worth waiting for 10 months of the year in order to get this taste!
